Murder Mysteries

Murder mystery parties are back in fashion!  Whether it is a couples’ weekend away or a friendly get-together at home, murder mystery parties are a great way to spend an evening.  We have costumes that span centuries and countries so we’re bound to have several options for your specific character.  We will discuss a few costuming options based on your vision for the character as well as our knowledge of the time period.  We can put together a complete outfit or even suggest key pieces that can be worn with your own clothes.

Gloves, Glasses, and Boas, Oh my!

So you already have a costume, or at least something passable from your closet.  That’s great!  Don’t forget to jazz it up with accessories so it really transforms from a plain cocktail dress to a dynamite flapper.  We have all sorts of accessories including but not limited to gloves (long, short, colored, lace, satin, adult, children), glasses (funky, nerdy, 1950s-1980s, sci-fi), boas (every color of the rainbow), necklaces (hippie, pimp), bracelets (1960s mod), rings, headbands (flapper, hippie), hats (goofy, pirate, patriotic, top hats, fedoras), scarves, shoe buckles, neck-wear, suspenders, weapons (tommy guns, pistols, swords, nun chucks), fake cigarettes, shoes (go-go boots, platforms, character shoes, saddle oxfords).  We could honestly go on and on and on AND on about the accessories we keep in stock.  The best thing to do is visit us at the shop.  One of our associates can help you find what you are looking for no problem!

We’ve got Retro!

There’s a lot coming up in the near future–from RetroFest to the start of Opera season.

 On a related note, those of you getting ready for RetroFest should definitely check out our shop! Our store contains sale costume and accessories as well as a fantastic selection of vintage and vintage-styled rental outfits. We carry everything from bell-bottoms and polyester pants to daishikis, pimp suits, leisure suits, and some great one-of-a-kind dresses. That’s right, our rentals are all unique–you won’t see someone at a party with the same outfit as you.

 Aside from that, we’ve also got a huge selection of Retro/hippie sunglasses and shades–big, small, blue, clear, green, gold, sparkle; all sorts–and several different wigs that are just perfect for hippie costumes. We’ve got afros, long hippie wigs, bobs, and gogo-dancer wigs. We even carry men’s platform shoes and women’s go-go boots.  Come by the store and try some on!
